Discussion Summary

Longevity Explorer Steve starts a discussion about the cable internet option and consumer choices to bundle or unbundle cable Internet, phone, and streaming services. 

The group discusses the options, and concerns that consolidation of provders is limiting the market leverage of individual consumers. One member uses the buying power of the user to pressure providers into offering a special rate. Direct conversations with providers' local sales offices is also offered as a good approach.

Also discussed:

  • Land Lines can be valuable in emergency power failure.
  • Streaming and Smart TVs as an option to cable TV
  • Q&A about payment options and how to access the services

On the other hand, the availability of some attractive options is limited to multi-unit residential buildings, and members report seeing a decline in customer service quality with consolidations of communication companies.
